Today we have some great news to share with our readers!

Mr. Tuten, Creative Director of Fun Spot America (that will be the new name of Fun Spot Action Park in Orlando, as it was announced some time ago) kindly shared with us a lot of additional details regarding the major expansion of the park, which will truly become extraordinary. Here you are some of the rides and attractions you can expect to see (Please, keep in mind that these are work-in-progress computer models, and some attractions will possibly be changed):

Let's start by taking a look at a rendering of the whole park, with most of the new attractions planned.
We were told that the two new coasters, the new go-kart track (the green one), and the SkyCoaster (which will be a 250’ tall lattice arch structure, formerly located at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas) are very likely to be as they are shown in this drawing. We were also told that the WindSeeker shown in this computer model (the tall, white ride located between the two new coasters) is less likely to to be included:

Here's another view of the park from a different angle. Notice the size of the wooden coaster and the water park. Also, the rendering confirms that the famous Fun Spot Ferris Wheel will be relocated on top of a new building, which will function as the main entrance of the park (by the way, general admission will still be free). The park will also have a Double-Decker Chance Carousel:

Did you know that with the addition of the new SkyCoaster, we will have the two tallest SkyCoasters in the world in the Orlando area? One is currently located at Fun Spot U.S.A. (in Kissimmee), while the new one will be located at this park, Fun Spot America. Here's a photo of the new SkyCoaster:

As in many situations, the park expansion will be done in phases, and "the exact breakdown of that is yet to be determined," as stated by Mr. Tuten. "[Fun Spot America is] also working with ACI, a local architecture firm, on some very exciting designs for our buildings and structures which [Fun Spot America] will make public in the coming months. These building designs are not included in the current computer model." This means that there will be even more things to look forward to!

Now let's talk about coasters. As mentioned at the beginning, the park will have two of them:

The first one will be a Chance-Vekoma Suspended Family Coaster. Here is a video which shows the same model of the coaster that will be built, aside from the theming. Also, here's a rendering of how the ride will look like at Fun Spot America:

The second coaster - which will certainly please many coaster-lovers! - will be a Wood/Steel Hybrid Coaster designed by Great Coasters International, Inc. That's the same great company that is currently building the majestic Wodan at Europa-Park! "This coaster will have a steel structure with a classic wood top and track. It will be the first wood/steel hybrid coaster for Great Coasters International." At this link, you will find a video of a computer animation of the coaster. In addition to that, here's a rendering of the ride:

Mr. Tuten also added that "both... coasters are about 60’ tall. We believe they are very exciting, but still accessible for the whole family. The height requirement for the suspended coaster is only 38” tall, the wood coaster is not much more... We are working very hard on creating a great park for the whole family. It’s Huge!"

This expansion will really be a major event here in Central Florida. All Fun Spot Parks already offer a lot of family-friendly attractions, and with this expansion they will surely attract even more families and teenagers.
